A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a certain feature that's not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Through our shared web hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot along with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their administration a lot easier. Whatever the plan that you choose, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You will also have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we haven't limited the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want since this feature is unrestricted. Since the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to select which folder it's going to access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can very easily see and handle them. Using instant access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
